Estimated timeline for launch of Bukit Batok West Ave 8 EC :
On the 10 June 2021, the Singapore Government announced the Government Land Sales (GLS) Programme for the second half of 2021 (2H2021), and the acceptance of an application from a developer to put up the White site at Marina View for sale by public tender.
The GLS Programme for 2H2021 comprises four Confirmed List sites and nine Reserve List sites. These sites can yield about 6,860 private residential units, 90,000 sqm gross floor area (GFA) of commercial space and 530 hotel rooms.
The Confirmed List comprises four private residential sites, including the Bukit Batok West Ave 8 Executive Condominium (EC) site which can yield 375 EC units.
The new Bukit Batok West Avenue 8 EC is to be launched in the next up and upcoming residential zone of Singapore, alongside new BTO projects like West Scape, West Hill, West Plains, and West Edge.
It is also next to the developing Tengah region, and within walking distance to the Tengah Plantation MRT Station, part of the Jurong Region Line.
It is anticipated to be released to a high demand, as there has not been any Executive Condominium projects launched in that area for a very long time.
A quick analysis of prices of some condominium projects within the vicinity of the Bukit Batok EC land plot, we have Guilin View, Hilltop Grove, Regent Heights and The Madeira hovering at below $1000psf, The Jade at about $1100psf and the newly launched Le Quest mixed development at around $1400psf.
